Sheikhs Batmobile: In Pursuit Of American Pop Culture In The Muslim World by Richard Poplak
Publisher: Penguin Canada | 2009 | ISBN: 0143056557 | 408 pages | EPUB | 1,36 MB
What happens to our pop culture when it meets another culture head-on—especially one that according to some is completely at odds with our own?
In The Sheikh's Batmobile, pop-cultural commentator Richard Poplak sets out on an unusual two-year odyssey. His mission is to see what becomes of his, and North America's, obsessions—pop songs and sitcoms, Hollywood movies and shoot-em-up video games, muscle cars and punk music—when they make their way into the Muslim world.
